Garden Club

Anyone interested in learning a little more about gardening is most welcome to come and join us. Club membership is neither expensive nor in any sense exclusive. Our Club co-ordinator Wendy Hewitt will be pleased to give you more information. You can contact us by email at

We hold meetings in the Village Hall at 7.00 pm on the first Wednesday of most months, with speakers on all sorts of garden-related topics. We make no charge for occasional interested visitors, so why not come along and give us a try?

We also arrange visits to interesting gardens and nurseries during the summer months.
